Spikes suspended for first half against Vanderbilt

UPDATE TO THIS STORY! Here's a link to my breaking news story about the Spikes suspension with quotes from the SEC. It's been up for about four hours now but here's the link all the same. LINK!

GAINESVILLE -- Brandon Spikes released this statement through the University of Florida sports information department on Monday regarding his show of unsportsmanlike behavior on Saturday.

"I accept responsibility for my actions and I accept the consequences of my actions," Spikes said. "I would like to apologize to my team and the coaching staff and Washaun Ealey. Football is a very physical and emotional game, but there is no excuse for my actions."

(EARLIER) UF linebacker Brandon Spikes will miss the first half of the Vandy game on Saturday for his eye-gouging attempt on Georgia's Washaun Ealey. The YouTube videos of this keep getting taken down, but check out this view while you still can: LINK

Pretty dirty play by Spikes, and kudos to Urban Meyer for stepping in. This kind of stuff happens in football, but you can't get caught doing it.

tbone - Then your also calling your coach a sissy, because he is now suspended. But, the SEC is still looking into it so watch for more to come.

But I'm sure you don't think he did anything wrong.


canes...nice showing against v tech and clemson. 2 stellar conference foes.

He got caught so Meyer has to suspend him, but I don't think it is a huge deal.

It was a stupid thing to do, but he and the GA offense had been phuking with each other all game.

MTX Cane,

If you had actually watched the game you would realize that Georgia played dirty the whole game. Spikes got caught retaliating. I have no problem with him giving the other team a taste of its own medicine. Thats why you Cane clowns have no credibility over on these blogs. You don't comment on the complete picture. Again you are a sissy girl and don't belong here. Go back to the koolaid blogs and talk about how great your one point mickey mouse win was.
It's pretty bad when Wake Forrest kicks your team butt up and down the field.

Appropriate action by Urban. While Gator Haters will be calling for a lifetime suspension and calling the punishment a joke, we all all know they are just trying to discredit Meyer because they are scared to death of the dynasty Urban has brought to Florida.

Shouldn't U and Ur Cane Tards pals be a little more worried about giving up 500 yrds and 30 points a game ?

Check out the elbow the Georgia running back throws at Spikes at the 1:15 mark of the tape. Slow the tape down and there is a clear elbow.
First they ripped his helmet off and poke his eye than he gets an elbow to the chin and he should just sit there and take it. Next time eat his eye ball.

Really chippy game. Spikes probably got less thn he deserved, but it's SEC Slivie approved, so time to move on. Stamper kicks butt in the middle too.

quit talking
when the Gators win the national championship it still won't be enough for them

Why?
BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT GATORS
THEY DON'T HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN 3 MNCs in 4 YEARS
They are stuck between the distant past and the possible future
They have not gone 43-6 in the last 3 and a half years
They hate, they envy, they are jealous
OF THE PINNACLE OF SUCCESS!

8-0...focus on Vandy
They were beating apparently the top team in the ACC until the wheels came off in the 3rd
quarter. One game at a time. Pull out your Commodore jerseys this week you haters!

so is this a step up or a step down from the 24 arrest in the last 4 years?

A HALF GAME SUSPENSION? AHHHH 1NCE AGAIN THE TURDS GETAWAY WITH NO SANCTIONS FROM THE SOMEWHAT EASY CONFERENCE (SEC)......
SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF THE MANY COP-OUTS...FOR THE TURDS.. ANOTHER EXAMPLE WHICH COMES TO MIND> THE JARVIS "WISHES HIS NAME WAS SANTANA" MOSS SUSPENSION...LEYER DECIDED TO SUSPEND HIS 2 WEEKS AFTER THE SC GAME...GATURDS U REMEMBER HE BLOCKED THAT FG AT THE END OF THE GAME TO ESCAPE A COLLAPSE AT THE DUMP?
BRANDON IZZO SPIKES WILL BE A SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER AT BEST ON SUNDAYS, SEAN SPENCE WILL BE A LB ON SUNDAYS.....
24 AND RISING THE STORY OF FOLEY AND THE FRAUDS.....

More Gator Envy displayed by the lowly Canes.

canes...still not a very good team, eh? how long will you remain the "baby canes" exactly?

losers

so is this a step up or a step down from the 24 arrest in the last 4 years?

lol..

hahahahahahahaha

That was a good one.

Nice of Tebow to make excuses for one of the dirtiest plays seen in CFB in awhile.

Dude's Christian bit is complete phony. Have fun, Tim. Gig's up for you after this year, and it's back to your spike-haired, cargo pants wearing mall rat life. (After your brief stint being exposed in the NFL, of course.)

Eye gouging in a game? Gee, that shocks me, that never happened before? Canes fans You would not understand. You dont have a rival. Not one! Not even Florida State. You almost lost to Waker Forrest. You dont have passion..hell, you dont even have fans! Maybe if as many so-called canes fans went to the games as threw their 2 cents in on the GATOR blog, they could come close to half filling the stadium. Watch your own games. Post your own blogs and get a life! This Gator band wagon is huge, so jump on if you like.

wow...really? it doesnt matter if your a gator, a cane or a seminole...eye gouging ? they dont even let you do that in the wwe? fake wrestling...you all know if it was a hurricane player or florida state player you would be saying suspended him for the rest of the season. good one tim teabag. "they did it first!" have fun while it last gators playing your easy schedule...wait til your beloved teabow leaves to nfl with meyer holding on to his wwjd jock strap
